As a Christian, I feel the Bible is handled very well, meaning that Scripture is not taken out of context and is shown in all its raw, gritty, realness. This is not a fake "God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life" full of unicorns-and-rainbows-and-prosperity type of gospel. No, this is the II Timothy 3:12 ("Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.") gospel...the real one. Well done for handling the Word of God well.
I have two qualms, one is personal and the other is professional (not enough to drop it to four stars because I liked the book that much). First, I do find it slightly hard to believe that the one book besides the Bible that Heather must keep nearby is the Harris brothers' "Do Hard Things." Don't get me wrong; the book's theme of teenagers stepping it up is an obvious theme and motivation for the book, but it kind of felt like a shameless plug and, to me, took away from the realism of the book just a tiny bit. Second, I read the Kindle version of the book (and plan on purchasing copies of this for the three in our nascent youth group) and found a few (not many) errors. I'm not sure they translated to the printed text, but that is a professional problem I have with it. A previous reviewer indicated an issue with possessives, which I honestly did not find (except one). If you are referring to the plural or singular possessives having just an apostrophe, which I think you are, those are correct as is.
I am considering writing a more thought-out review but, now that I consider it, I might have one of my youth do a "hard thing" and write one for our church.
Bravo, Leah. Please continue to write. I am very interested in the war that leads to this book and what happens to all of the gang in books to come. Consider me a supporter for future books.
Heather's dad just got arrested. The government had tracked the Bible to their house. Now alone, Heather struggles to know what God wants of her. Should she try to help her dad, and how can she when the government has the general population tricked? But with the underground Church and friends that never leave, Heather is about to learn about God's amazing power. And she might not be the only one.
"Counted Worthy," though set in the future, reminds of the drastic reality of persecution many people face today. Their faith is illegal. A Bible, if found, could get them killed. In times like this, the people can only call out to the One who has delivered others before. Never sure of their present deliverance, they can know that their Savior has died for them and will be waiting for them on the other side of death.
Though a little slow at the beginning, the story picks up and causes one to turn pages later on. A story reminding of a difficult truth, Counted Worthy will help you value God's Word.
